I was searching for Crepe Paper Crafts over the weekend and stumbled onto this beautiful tutorial for Sewing Pattern Twinkle Lights over at Everyday Beauty. The simplicity and charm of these took my breath away. These lovelies are made with old fabric patterns and white christmas lights. Good thing I just happen to collect fabric patterns – I knew they would come in handy some day! I can’t wait to find an excuse to make a garland of my own. Be sure to check out the full post for complete instructions.

    This is so simple and gorgeous. I have always wanted to paint my bathroom a dark navy and cover the walls in vintage sewing patterns. You may have just given me the nudge to do it.

    I love this idea! Unfortunately, I don’t have any old sewing patterns lying around…could I make this work with unbleached coffee filters you think?

    I bet coffee filters would be equally as pretty! Great idea 🙂
